As sung by Kenneth McKellar

I'll sing of a river I'm happy beside
The song that I sing is a song of the Clyde
Of all Scottish rivers itís dearest to me
It flows from Leadhills all the way to the sea
It borders the orchards of Lanark so fair
Meanders through meadows with sheep grazing there
But from Glasgow to Greenock, in towns on each side
The hammers' "ding-dong" is the song of the Clyde

Oh the River Clyde, the wonderful Clyde
The name of it thrills me and fills me with pride
And I'm satisfied whate'er may betide
The sweetest of songs is the song of the Clyde

Imagine weíve left Craigendoran behind
And wind-happy yachts by Kilcreggan we find
At Kirn and Dunoon and Innellan we stay
Then Scotlandís Madeira thatís Rothesay, they say
Or maybe by Fairlie or Largs we will go
Or over to Millport that thrills people so
Mavbe journey to Arran it can't be denied
Those scenes all belong to the song of the Clyde

Oh the River Clyde, the wonderful Clyde
The name of it thrills me and fills me with pride
And I'm satisfied whate'er may betide
The sweetest of songs is the song of the Clyde

There's Paw an' Maw doon at the Broomielaw
They're goin' "doon the water" for "The Fair"
There's Bob an' Mary on the Govan Ferry
Wishin' jet propulsion could be there
There's steamers cruisin' and there's "buddies" snoozin'
And there's laddies fishin' frae the pier
An' Paw's perspirin' very near expirin'
As he rows a boat frae there to here
With eyes a-flashin', it is voted "smashin"
To be walkin' daily on the prom
And May and Ev'lyn are in seventh heaven
As thy stroll along with Dick and Tom
And Dumbarton Rock to ev'ry Jean and Jock
Extends a welcome that is high and wide
Seems to know that they are on their homeward way
To hear the song of the Clyde

Oh the River Clyde, the wonderful Clyde
The name of it thrills me and fills me with pride
And I'm satisfied whate'er may betide
The sweetest of songs is the song of the Clyde

The sweetest of songs is the song of the Clyde
